Scientific immunity

  ”In the beginning, no one cared about this disaster. It was just a wildfire, a drought, the extinction of a species, the disappearance of a city, until this disaster is closely related to everyone.”
  This is the science fiction movie “Wandering Earth” The lines in “. At the beginning of 2020, an unexpected epidemic made people unprepared and menacing. It makes the world as if the pause button has been pressed, affecting everyone’s life.
  Fighting the epidemic is not only a people’s war in the field of public health, but also a test of public scientific literacy. A survey of 14? 036 adults in 14 countries of the current state of science index survey shows that Chinese people have a higher degree of trust in science than other countries, but because of the lack of popular science, people have misunderstood some events. For example, misunderstandings about genetically modified foods and food additives. After the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, some rumors under the guise of “science” are not uncommon. “Shuanghuanglian can suppress the new crown virus.” As soon as the news came out, the circle of friends immediately fried the pot. Many areas appeared to queue up to buy Shuanghuanglian oral liquid, and it was sold out instantly online and offline, which reminds people of the SARS period Panlangen incident. In fact, neither of them can play the role that “snatchers” hope.
  ”The rumors stop at the wise man”, the name of this wise man should be called science. Only when science is mastered by the public can it illuminate the way people move forward. In the face of various rumors flying in the sky during this epidemic, many scientific researchers stepped forward in time, and authoritative medical experts became “national internet celebrities”. They showed up and brought the latest epidemic progress and anti-virus protection knowledge to them. To help the public… These popular science work is “grounded, soiled, and dewdropped”. While clarifying fallacies, calming panic, and transferring knowledge, it has also effectively improved the public’s scientific literacy. The epidemic has prompted people to embrace science, perceive science, and recognize science more acutely.
  Nowadays, 75% alcohol, 84 disinfectant, frequent hand washing, more ventilation, and wearing masks when going out have become familiar and easy-to-operate anti-epidemic “artifacts” for the common people. The original unpopular knowledge such as “84 disinfectant can not be mixed with toilet cleaner” and “84 disinfectant should be diluted to a concentration of 2‰ to 5‰” has also become a friendly reminder for many people after eating.
  This epidemic has allowed us to witness the continuous improvement of the scientific literacy of the public, the tenacious will of the descendants of Yan and Huang in the face of adversity, and the cohesion and centripetal force of the Chinese nation at a historic moment. In this desperate battle against the epidemic, the heroic Chinese sons and daughters raced against the same time, battled against the disease, united in their will, and watched and helped each other…together they created the “life is supreme, the whole country is of one heart, the life is forgotten, the science is respected, and the destiny is shared.” Anti-epidemic monument.
  In 2020, “rat” will not be easy; in 2021, “bull” will surely turn the world. In the face of all kinds of undiscriminated information, not blindly, not blindly following, not believing or spreading rumors, not anxious, not panic, and seeking answers from science is the best “vaccine” against all pseudoscience.
